22:02 francogrex Hi
22:03 francogrex are new tasks being added?
22:03 TimToady occasionally
22:04 francogrex it's hard to find the newly created, I can probably see the newly updated
22:05 francogrex I had proposed one task (the hash-join algorithm) more than 2 years ago but it got ignored
22:06 TimToady they tend to show up at the bottom of a language's http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Reports:Tasks_not_implemented_in_Foo page
22:06 fedaykin "Reports:Tasks not implemented in Foo - Rosetta Code" http://rldn.net/binJ
22:07 TimToady somehow I don't think that page is really there :)
22:08 francogrex it's not a specific language the problem. I meant it was never proposed
22:09 francogrex in any language
22:11 TimToady well, then it didn't interest anyone enough to do it, including you :)
22:14 TimToady Some people say "they should do such and so," and it's a great revelation to them when they finally figure out that "they" means "me".
22:20 * mikemol|zoe is absolutely furious about Siskus.
22:23 mikemol|zoe I hope I was appropriately and sufficiently clear. http://tinyurl.com/pw2gdrh
22:23 fedaykin "Difference between revisions of "User talk:Siskus" - Rosetta Code"
22:25 TimToady yeah, I was thinking about a ban too
22:26 TimToady but I thought you put it very well
22:26 mikemol|zoe I sometimes do that if I'm sufficiently pissed^Wpassionate.
22:27 mikemol|zoe So, Pascal's doing very well. My wife and I have settled on names for our next kid...if it's a girl, it's still going to be Ada. If it's a boy, it's going to be Alan (After Alan Turing).
22:28 mikemol|zoe There are sadly few programming languages with names appropriate for boys. And she won't let me name him B F Mol, or C Mol, or Malbolge, or anything with an interesting unicode character in it...
22:29 Hypftier Plankalkül? :P
22:30 mikemol|zoe I'm pushing for Ishmael as a middle name, for two reasons. First, it's an excellent counter to Isaac. Second, the initials work out nicely; it'd be PM vs AM, or PIM vs AIM. Plenty of room for wordplay in there.
22:31 mikemol|zoe And she's a fan of Moby Dick, so the "Call me Ishmael" line will probably crop up from time to time.
22:31 TimToady quick, someone create a programming language called Ahab...
22:33 mikemol|zoe Isn't it about time to get a Lingua::Romana::Perligata analogy for Perl 6? Even without the elegance of latin, you could refactor things to relate to whaling...
22:34 * TimToady will leave that part up to TheDamian
22:36 mikemol|zoe My wife has sold me on the beauty of latin; being able to shuffle the words in a statement without changing the semantic meaning of said statement is actually pretty impressive...
22:37 TimToady well, yeah, but classical Greeks took rather more advantage of that than the Romans did, actually
22:39 TimToady perhaps it had to do with more non-Romans speaking Latin as a second language (though Greek had its share of non-native speakers as well), so the word order tended to be a bit more regular in Latin (or so I'm told)
22:40 TimToady but yeah, case languages have their advantages :)
22:42 TimToady with Koine Greek we see the same thing happening, with non-Greek speakers regularizing the grammar greatly
22:44 * TimToady is amused to read in the Septuagint lots of places where the translators couldn't remember the imperfect verb forms, "he went", so ended up doing the same thing we do in English, "he was going".
22:47 TimToady so you see about 500% more instances of the word ἦν in the LXX than in classical Greek.
22:47 TimToady or so it seems...
22:50 francogrex i would love to start up the page for this task, but I don't know how to start a page, all they proposed at the time is to suggest it, there was no possibility to create the page
22:52 TimToady I think you just type in a URL that doesn't exist, and it offers to let you create it; 'course, the tricky bit is know what to put there--you can look at another draft task for ideas how to format
22:54 francogrex ok thanks it is a rather new feature to let users create the task but it is worth a try
22:54 * TimToady has to wander off, but ask mikemol|zoe if you get stuck...
22:55 mikemol|zoe oi
22:55 mikemol|zoe I wander off in six minutes
22:55 mikemol|zoe francogrex: What do you want the task to be called?
22:56 RRR2 joined #rosettacode
23:00 francogrex mikemol|zoe: hash join
23:01 mikemol|zoe [[Join a hash]]
23:01 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Join_a_hash (Doesn't exist, try http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Special:Search/Join%20a%20hash )
23:01 mikemol|zoe Open that first URL. Click "create page" or some such.
23:01 francogrex ok great
23:01 mikemol|zoe Add {{task}} as the first bit of content in the page.
23:01 mikemol|zoe [[Template:Task]] for usage.
